Description: As a family-owned restaurant, Fatso's Pizza is all about fresh ingredients, homemade sausage, and real imported Wisconsin cheese. We offer a thin and crispy crust (not cracker thin though) in white or whole wheat or a deep dish pan crust. Our sauce is made with a special blend of spices. Lots of great combinations or build your own pizza. Our wings are big and meaty with a spicy buffalo sauce or honey hot sauce to choose from. Our homemade ranch dressing is the best there is. Our oven baked sandwiches are delicious, too. We also offer huge calzones, fresh salads and munchies. We have 19 beers on tap, bomber bottles, house wine and a limited selection of liquor. We offer carry-out as well as delivery in a limited area. Live music Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from 6:30-9:30pm. We carry the NFL package and have 17 TV's. Fatso's Pizza is your neighborhood bar and pizza joint.

We specifically went to this restaurant for pizza because of the advertised "Thin and Crispy Pizza". A few of the reviews also raved about their thin crust pizza. I realize this is a subjective issue, but our pizza was nothing close to what we expected. The crust was similar to a Pizza Hut hand-tossed crust, and I would describe it... More

I don't know how this got the 9th highest rating in Phoenix but it surely does not deserve it! They advertise 1/2# sandwich meat. Not close to 1/2# and the meat is sliced pressed meat. Highly disappointed :-(

We used to come here with our kids starting in 1996. Kids are grown and gone so we stopped coming here. We went back on a whim last week and are we glad we did. Service is still stellar. Still the best pizza anywhere. Great beer selection. We will make this place out regular stop again.

Some of the best pizza anywhere. During the day there are pizza specials. On some nights the restaurant has live music. The restaurant is divided into two dining areas and a bar. The best pizza in Phoenix.

I have been eating there at least twice a week (they oven bake their hot wings: YUM!) the owners are nearly always there and are very friendly. There is a strong group of regulars which speaks for the relationships that these brothers build with people. They have open-mike night on Thursdays, live music with outstanding performers on Friday and Saturday... More
